Our family of four stayed in one of the Bethel Inn Townhouses. It was very spacious with an open floor plan. Our porch overlooked the golf course. We were quite a distance away from the inn, but a ten minute walk to the pool was refreshing. Loved being able to walk downtown. Bethel is just one hour away from North...

Thank you for your kind review. Our location in the heart of Bethel’s National Historic District is important to so many of our guests. While we also offer traditional guest rooms, many of our guests choose our townhouses with virtually all the comforts of home and the open floor plans you mentioned. Glad you enjoyed your stay and please look...

We went up as a large group to the townhouses. There was plenty of room! What a beautiful location overlooking the golf course. It was clean and cozy. There was plenty to do. Swimming in April was amazing in the heated pool. We worked out, walked the grounds. We ate breakfast in the main dining room which was delicious. Sunday...

We are fortunate to host so many family get-togethers and our townhomes are very popular with groups like yours. The year-round outdoor heated pool is very popular, especially with the younger set. April at the resort isn’t “peak” season but families always find a lot to do and the spring skiing can be awesome. So glad you enjoyed your stay...

I stayed for a long weekend with family - elderly, adults and small children. All enjoyed the spacious condos which are great for accommodating large groups. It's a perfect place to stay for a ski weekend or summer getaway. Beautiful views of the golf course, a nice heated pool, friendly staff and a nice, old world feeling dining room /...

My family stayed in a 3 bedroom townhouse for 3 nights for Easter weekend. It was a beautiful location with surprisingly nice weather for April in Maine. Our rooms were quite spacious for four adults and 6 kids. Everything was super clean. The amenities were convenient so we could dine in when we wanted to. The breakfast was delicious...the waffles...

We loved our stay for four days at the Bethel Inn. We stayed in the Mill brook townhouses which were beautifully cleaned and perfectly decorated. To sit on the deck overlooking the golf course made our days relaxing and fun. The outdoor heated pool is a highlight for our grandkids and us. We love to swim. Robin's hospitality at the...

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Bethel Inn. It is a beautiful setting and nice building. The rooms were average with Beds that were a bit smaller than expected. Staff were friendly. I guess we arrived after "high season, although it was a busy weekend, therefore it was a cold rather than hot breakfast buffet. We enjoyed the...

Thank you for taking the time to write. Sorry we were in quiet season and the full breakfast buffet wasn’t available and even in off-season our younger guests can be a little loud at poolside.

We attended an organized ski event at the Bethel Inn earlier this year with a group of friends and rented several condos. I had stayed at the resort one night a few years ago and thought it was OK, if a bit pricey, so I did not due diligence on the pricing (a friend booked it) and I was appalled...

I am sorry your stay was so disappointing. As you can see from the reviews above and below, we must have been off our game and I apologize for the shortcomings you pointed out. With respect to pricing, I can only say that we track our competitors’ rates carefully and we are at or below the rates at comparable resorts....

The Bethel Inn has a handsome lobby and old world charm. Set in the center of a picturesque Maine village, the setting is classic, old New England. Our room was spacious, clean, and the gas fireplace was a very nice touch. But stylistically our room was tired and stale. It was traditional, as you would expect at an old inn...

February is the second biggest month of the year (after August) and what a bad time for one of our outdoor pool heaters to break down!
